Learn a Skill
Troop 80 is in the wilderness a lot. There are always new skills to learn to keep trips safe, adventurous, and fun. Here is a list of skills we practice.
Knots animated with great pictures. Climbing, tarp setting, survival are all important categories.
Setting tarps 25 different ways. We rarely use self standing tents.
Orienting a map and compass. Learn to paste the map to the surface of the earth.
First Aid is a big topic. We train in a hands on environment.
Fire Starting in Harsh Weather. Practice in difficult conditions so you’re ready.
Knife Choice and Care. Be safe, practical, and prepared.
Dehydrating Food. We dry a lot of our own food so our packs are light and delicious.
